The Cause of Guilt

The Cause of Guilt

2021 Gathering, Part Thirty-Nine

So the next important thing to overcome to achieve soul contact, is to overcome guilt, and guilt is a real big one. Do you remember what Jesus said to many he healed?

Michael: Go and sin no more.

JJ: Right. He said that, and he also said, “your sins are forgiven.” Okay. And boy, that really riled up the authorities. “Who is this guy? Does he think he’s God that he can forgive sins?

Yeah, He didn’t say that because of being God or anything like that. He said it because He understood the principle. He understood that when people feel guilt, it interferes with the flow of energy in the body and often will produce illness of some kind. All kinds of illnesses are caused by guilt.

And then when we have guilt, and we suppress it, we suppress the feeling connected with the guilt. Then there are blockages in the energy flow that are even worse, and can produce cancer, heart disease . . . all kinds of different things . . . tumors or whatever can be produced through guilt and the feelings that are associated with it.

What produces guilt is an interesting thing. Guilt is produced by what? What do you think produces it? What gives something power to produce guilt in you?

Curtis: Illusion.

JJ: It’s illusion. Guilt is produced by illusion one-hundred percent, but what creates the illusion?

Curtis: An idea.

JJ: How is the disciple or the pilgrim deceived? It’s a deception. Guilt is caused by a deception. Where is the deception that produces the guilt?

Tyler: Is it through authority?

JJ: Right. You’re on the right track there. External authority.

What produces guilt, is the feeling that you have offended God.  And this is even true for an atheist, because even an atheist or non-believer has a concept of something higher than himself, even though he won’t admit it. Even they have substitutes for God.

No one has done anything to offend God. God cannot be offended by us, no matter what we do. He understands our weaknesses and our frailties, and no matter what we do, He is not offended. But guilt is caused because we think we have offended God. And who tells us that we’ve offended God?

Susan: The accuser.

JJ: Well, sometimes the accuser. But that doesn’t wash with me. Somebody can accuse me all they want, and I don’t feel any guilt. Okay.

Susan: In the scriptures, Satan is called the Accuser.

JJ: Right. Satan is called the Accuser of the brethren. But what actually produces that feeling? What gives an accuser power to make you feel guilty?

Rebecca: I have a thought. I think a lot of it is a feeling of inadequacy and comparing to others, like expectation, like feeling inadequate.

JJ: Okay, that’s a big part of it. There’s an important key here.

Phillip: I think there is . . . it’s tied to the fruit of the key of knowledge of good and evil, in that somebody tells you what is right and wrong, and you believe that, you take that on yourself.

JJ: Okay, you’re on the right track. Somebody tells you what’s right and wrong. And who’s that somebody?

Phillip: You. You accept what they’ve said.

JJ: Yeah, you have to accept them as being that somebody, but who is that somebody that tells you what’s right and wrong?

Asaph: I am, myself.

JJ: You decide who tells you that. But who is that person that’s teaching you? It is somebody that is taking the place of God.

If you’re in a church, for instance, and the prophet says that certain types of sex are evil and you’re not supposed to do it, well you’ll feel guilty if you do it.

If the prophet says, “don’t drink coffee.” And you drink coffee, then you may feel guilty if you do that.

Now if a Catholic drinks coffee, he doesn’t feel guilty at all, because his priest who is the substitute for God has not told him that drinking coffee is wrong, so he feels absolutely no guilt by drinking coffee.

If your religious authority tells you it’s wrong to eat peas, you would feel guilty if you ate peas. Because if you really accept this guy as a mouthpiece for God, you would feel guilty eating peas, if he says God doesn’t want you to eat those peas.

What produces guilt is when a person accepts an individual person as a spokesman for God that tells him what is right and wrong. Now, that can be a person. It can also be a book even like just reading the Bible and you read the Bible and it says it’s wrong to do this. And if he thinks that’s the voice of God . . . then if he breaks that, then he feels he has offended God.

If his priest tells him this, then and he accepts that as being the priest says, “if you’re naughty in this area, you’ve offended God,” then you’ll feel guilty about it. When we’re first born, the people that are the authorities in our life are our parents, and our parents are substitutes for God. In other words, for a little kid our parents are pretty much Gods. And if our parents say, “Now, Johnny, that’s naughty when you do this.” Well, Johnny will feel guilty about breaking this particular rule.

And then as we go out, we transfer our substitute for God to religious leaders and also even political leaders. For the atheists, its often political or social pressure. The atheists can feel guilty that he violates what his group thought form is.

So this group thought form is the substitute for God. Whatever substitutes for God, the voice of God, whether it be for an atheist, a believer, it doesn’t matter who he is. This has power to produce guilt. So how do we surmount guilt then if that’s what produces guilt?

Michael: This is one of the things I really appreciate about DK’s writing, where he says the only obedience you owe is to your own soul or higher self.

JJ: Right. And so where does God really speak? He speaks through your own soul. The 144,000, that are redeemed have the name of God in their forehead. In other words, the true voice of God comes from within.

No matter what you do, you will not feel guilty if you go by the voice of God within yourself. Because the voice of God within yourself never condemns. It will correct, but not condemn. Whereas the voice of God on the outside isn’t so interested in correcting because it likes the power of being your God. Your preacher, your political leaders, your parents, the authorities in your life like being authorities.

So the correction isn’t nearly as important as that power to be the God to you. So you have to release those, release all the outward authorities and only go by one inward authority. And the great part about that inward authority is it never will condemn you. You cannot commit sin bad enough for your soul to condemn you.

It may say, “well, Tyler, you’ve been naughty today, and know you need to do better tomorrow.” But it doesn’t condemn you.
